Below is a look at some of the headlines for companies that made news in the healthcare sector on September 16, 2011.

Generex Biotechnology Corporation (OTC:GNBT)
announced Dr. Nicola Napolii, from University Campus Bio-Medico in Rome, Italy, made a podium presentation of the clinical data on Generex Oral-lyn buccal insulin spray on September 14, 2011 at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal.

Dr. Napoli presented a paper entitled Buccal spray insulin: a new tool to treat subjects with impaired glucose tolerance. The paper was authored by a team of investigators led by Professor Paolo Pozzilli of the Endocrinology & Diabetes Department of University Campus Bio-Medico and the Diabetes Department of Hospital "S. Pertini", both in Rome, Italy. The results reported in the scientific paper demonstrated that patients treated with Generex Oral-lyn achieved a significant reduction of HbA1c compared to the control group, with no adverse events.

Also, there was no significant difference in body weight and no hypoglycaemic or other adverse events were observed during the study period in both groups. These preliminary results suggest that the addition of Generex Oral-lyn can be an effective treatment compared to diet and physical exercise alone in patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) in reducing HbA1c without adverse effects.
